Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Saint Charles

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Air Alliance Team have assembled a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you identify small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make sure your system is running at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the present temperature, try modifying it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the easiest and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to tackle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Air Alliance Team technician is over for your regular furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort.

There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 636-229-1544.
